“Under the world’s most ambitious and comprehensive set of measures, we have already taken thousands of the most polluting buses and taxis off the streets, and are planning the world’s first Ultra Low Emission Zone in central London from 2020.

London’s mayor Boris Johnson is full of praise for Hermes which delivers electrically in the British capital using 44 EVs in partnership with Gnewt Cargo.
